...and, as my father would say, it's a short trip. The kids got toys for Christmas, and the packaging is insane. Instead of putting all the accessories in a separate plastic bag, the toys are packaged such that all the tiny little doodads and thingamabobs are positioned as if they were being played with. Of course, they can't stay in that position by themselves, so every conceivable doodad, door, hinged part, truck, bed, and whatever is tied down with wired that is twisted around half a million times, or held down with plastic little rubber-band type things. It takes forever (well, to an antsy kid it might as well be forever) to take the toy out of the package.
I'm sure it's part of a vast conspiracy to put all parents in the loony bin!
